Home School Association Mission Statement

St. Rose of Lima Academy relies upon the volunteer efforts of parents. Volunteering for Academy activities is part of every parent’s commitment. Parent volunteers are organized through the parent’s association, which is called the Home School Association, or H.S.A. The H.S.A. fundraises to provide supplemental programs for the students and faculty and to assist with the Academy budget. The H.S.A. organizes those fundraisers and supplemental programs, as well as social events for the Academy community. The H.S.A. Executive Board is responsible for overseeing all parent volunteer programs and committees and works with the Principal to achieve both its fundraising goals, community outreach and policy guidelines as they relate to extra-curricular activities. St. Rose of Lima Academy and the St. Rose of Lima H.S.A. strongly believe that involved parents are essential and set the tone of warmth and respect for Catholic values and academic growth that prevails at St. Rose.

2021–2022 Mandatory Volunteer Sign-up

SRLA Volunteer Signup
Volunteer Application

Please add your name to our mandatory Volunter Signup list to lend a hand, which each family agreed to when they registered at SRLA. This signup breaks down the different volunteer opportunities at SRLA so parents can choose where they prefer to participate, or what works best with their schedule. Simply sign up each parent or guardian for whichever fundraising or volunteering event you'd like to be involved in for the 2021-22 school year. It's that simple! And, don't worry, all events are supported by the HSA so we will be there every step of the way!

Volunteering is a magical thing for our school community—we simply can't be SRLA without you! We also couldn't continue to grow and thrive as a school without the time, efforts, talents and contributions of each family. We have made beautiful friends, created new and enjoyable events, raised much needed funds, and brought forth exciting changes to our school. And, nothing beats the smiles on our children's faces when we volunteer at their school! So, grab a friend and help lead an event you love, or try something new! Think you are too busy? We have something for you! We appreciate all the different ways our families support SRLA!

Please be sure to pick a slot by November 1,2021. Volunteer hours will be assessed at the end of the year and fees will be assessed at that time. If you would like to opt out for the year, a $350 fee will be charged to your SMART Tuition account.
